Our services

Valuations, appraisals and identification

Want to know about your clock? Do you want to identify or value a British antique clock (English, Scottish, Welsh or Irish), or find out what is known about its maker, its style, its quality? It might be a clock you already own in the family or one you are thinking of buying: a longcase clock (also known as a grandfather clock or tall clock), a bracket clock, a wall clock, or a lantern clock.

Perhaps you need a valuation for insurance, selling, probate or family division. Or you're looking for an appraisal, assistance with a clock purchase, or consultancy?

Have a look at our valuations, appraisals and identification section and contact us with your enquiries.

Buying and selling on commission
